It was difficult to order tickets. Nobody speaks english and credit cards are not accepted, only cache. We were there to see the armory collection, but it was not so impressive. My personal opinion - try with any other museum.

Really interesting exhibitions focusing on local history, the most interesting for me being the armory. The lady in this section was very friendly, showed us the most important exhibits, moreover all texts were in English, too. The strange thing about this museum is that you...More

It is very difficult getting around without speaking Czech, since everything is mainly documented in Czech. This is very surprising since the museum is sponsored by the EU. It deserves more stars, which will be given, once it is truly multi-lingual.

The museum has a stunning range of displays- including the armoury - but the Prehistoric Archaeology galleries are knock out- the material on display is outstanding especially if you want to understand central european prehistory. Apart from the artefacts-which are beautifully displayed- there are several...More

The armory section of the museum is really worth visiting - particular highlights include a large collection of hand-cannon, blunderbuss, fire-locks and other medieval firearms, along with a decent selection of pole-arms. It is a great exhibition, however the employees were extremely grumpy and unpleasant....More
